Running exciting, cultural festivals throughout the year
Welcome to one of the biggest community-led cultural events in Coventry. This is your chance to see some of our hidden and brilliant talents.
But did you know the Positive Images Festival isn’t just about our annual festival? We try to hold events throughout the year, keeping our community and volunteers engaged in activities important to them.
There’s loads for you to see throughout the year, too. We embrace diversity in all its forms and make it our business to find opportunities for burgeoning talent from minority communities.
Our work culminates in the annual festival when you get to see Coventry’s finest do their stuff.
